SUMMER REGISTRATION - Enrolling All Students!
Summer Open Classes are dance classes that are offered on a single “Drop-in” basis. As many families travel during the summer and often have varying schedules, the Open Classes offer maximum flexibility. Dancers can pay to take a single class or buy a discounted (5) or (10) class card that works for all of the Open Classes at their experience level. We also offer an Unlimited Summer Pass for dancers who are available and want to dance all summer 🙂
Intensives, Dance Camps & Workshops are similar in that a student will attend (3 to 4) days in a row for (3 to 5) hours per day. They are designed to pack in a lot over the days a student attends and we regularly see accelerated growth in the short period of days.
They differ as Intensives are designed for dancers (ages 6+) with at least some experience, while Dance Camps are designed for younger dancers (ages 3 – 7). Workshops are designed with specific areas of focus on a dance style or technique. Students in Workshops typically work on a piece or several pieces with a mini performance on the last day. For example, the Musical Theatre Workshop covered numbers from the Musicals Cats, Cabaret and Mama Mia, performing them on the last day.
Our former session is less formal than during the school year. Athletic / dance attire is required for all camps, workshops and classes, but there is not a formal uniform. Our ballet intensives do require students to wear leotards, tights and ballet shoes, but there is no color or style requirement. Proper dance footwear is required for every class, camp and workshop (e.g. ballet shoes, jazz shoes, non-marking sneakers etc.) Please CONTACT US for further detailed information.
Make-ups are not offered during the Summer Session. Camps, Workshops and Intensives are paid for in advance and have specific curriculum designed for each day. Our Open Classes are offered via a drop-in basis, and thus can be canceled at no charge up to 48 hours in advance of the start of the class.
FALL REGISTRATION - Enrolling Current Students!
Priority registration for current students is available online. Be sure to check your email as Ms. Shay emailed class promotions, suggestions and a link to the preliminary Fall Schedule.
Fall Session FAQs
The new 2022/23 School Year, starting with the Fall Session, requires all students (current and new) to register for classes online. Priority registration is given to current students and you can register your dancer online via your 4SDA Account.
You can register your dancer(s) online via your 4SDA Account.
Yes! Discipline and routine is a part of all dance, not just ballet. Having your dancer wear a dance dress, leotard or other approved dance attire is a large part of the discipline which also creates familiarity and routine! You can find out all of the details on our Dress Code page.
In-studio Make-Ups are back! Online make-ups will be offered if dictated by the County’s COVID safety requirements. Make-ups are not guaranteed and are limited to (2) per semester, per dance genre, and then on a case-by-case basis. They should be reserved for unplanned absences (e.g. illness, family emergency). Regular attendance is not only the foundation for a dancer’s growth, but also builds great lifelong habits!
Our Mommy & Me! classes are back on the schedule for the fall! We loved having dads (Mr Jason was one!), grandparents and guardians/baby sitters bring our tiniest dancers to class before the pandemic and can’t wait to see a new group of little adorable smiles this fall!
